an immersive dining experience and sensory installation
a dinner party where diners move as a group from room-to-room, eating a different course in each. our goal: to reconstruct the familiar feeling and tastes of home in an unfamiliar way.
tink's house was sold out every night of its two-month run, and was reviewed by the Los Angeles Times, Los Angeles Magazine and NPR. additional reviews and excerpts can be found at the bottom of the page.
an abandoned, rundown house near downtown transformed into an art installation + pop-up restaurant. four rooms rebuilt to simulate the textures and sensations of each: den, dining room, kitchen, and bedroom.

"An excellent dinner idea for your art-gallery-hopping friends or art-loving significant other who doesn’t quite understand your food obsession. Both of you will have your way at Tink’s House."
"Tink’s house ended, and as I walked away, I thought I might never have such a unique dining experience."
"Like walking into a trippy dream by Brian Wilson"
"All Pop-ups should be this creative."
"It's gotten a ton of attention in LA, which is deserved because it lives up to its billing as an immersive dining experience where food, art and design come together."
"Haven't been that inspired in a long time. Get To It LA!"
